Work from students in the Ballard High School digital filmmaking program will take center stage for two nights next week in the BHS auditorium.

On June 6 and 7 at 7 p.m., student-made comedies, dramas, news features, and documentaries will be screened as part of the Ballard High School Film Festival.

“Air Pressure,” a short film by Leo Pfeifer and Coleman Andersen about a disaster at the World Balloon Animal Championships and an Official Selection at the Seattle International Film Festival, and “Just Plane Lucky”, a short filmed in 48-hours that took second place in the National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY) 48-hour film off, are among the student films that will be screened.

The festival will also feature productions recently honored by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, along with the Chicago International Film Festival. Alumni of the digital filmmaking program will also be in attendance, sharing work they’ve created in college filmmaking programs or during their professional careers.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students, with all proceeds benefitting students in the digital filmmaking program.
